When COVID hit our world a year ago, companies started handing out free items to individuals that were working their tails off as they were helping us all stay safe.  Crocs is one company that gave away over 860,000 pairs of free shoes to healthcare workers last year and they are ready to give more away this year.

According to their Facebook page, the giveaway of Crocs has started:

In honor of National Nurses Week and to all the healthcare workers, Crocs wants to thank you for all the hard work and celebrate those who have been on the frontlines throughout it all.
In 2020, Crocs donated over 860,000 free pairs of shoes to healthcare workers on the frontlines of COVID-19. And now, there’s no better way to say thank you than by doing it all over again starting at 12 pm ET May 10th-14th. #CrocsCares

Healthcare workers, if you could use a new pair of shoes, learn more at their website here.

To all the nurses that helped me throughout my life...I'm sorry.

I ❤️ nurses.  I've had quite a few that have shown major patience to me as I stepped on a hospital gown and bracelet throughout the years.  (I'm also not a great patient so anyone who steps in my hospital room, you truly are my favorite people. I just don't want to be there so thank you and sorry for being a crank.)

I'm not rich like Crocs but I do have something I can give out too!

I don't have any shoes to give out but I can give a shoutout to someone that is working on the frontlines right now. Let me know who you'd like me to shoutout and where they work! Send me a message on my Facebook page (Jessica On The Radio) or DM me on Instagram.
